‘In­sane clown’ protest

New York Post - - NEWS - Dean Balsamini

More than 1,000 fans of the rap group In­sane Clown Posse gath­ered in Washington on Satur­day to protest the FBI’s clas­si­fi­ca­tion of them as a gang.

The band’s fol­low­ers, called Jug­ga­los, ral­lied in front of the Lin­coln Me­mo­rial in a show of strength and unity. The ICP is su­ing the Depart­ment of Jus­tice to lift the des­ig­na­tion of the Jug­ga­los as a gang sim­i­lar to the Crips.

The pro­test­ers lis­tened to a se­ries of speak­ers and musicians amid clouds of mar­i­juana smoke.

The Jug­ga­los claim to be a non­vi­o­lent com­mu­nity that is the victim of largely class-based dis­crim­i­na­tion by law en­force­ment.

Hun­dreds of Pres­i­dent Trump’s sup­port­ers also ral­lied in DC, spark­ing one smart alec to tweet: “#Jug­ga­loMarch and Trump sup­port­ers both march­ing. One is a group of peo­ple who wor­ship an in­sane clown, the other is a group of Jug­ga­los.”
